The Proud Household is again after 17 years, and whereas a lot of the cartoon’s acquainted faces have returned for the Disney+ revival, one character is extraordinarily absent.
Throughout the first couple of minutes of The Proud Household: Louder and Prouder, which is now accessible to stream, Penny and her buddies uncover that Dijonay’s major squeeze Sticky (voiced by Orlando Brown) has primarily ghosted everybody.
“I’m actually gonna miss you guys,” Sticky says in a letter addressed to Penny. “My dad bought a job in Japan. He stated I didn’t should go. I may stick with my cousins if I needed, however I’ve had sufficient of that loopy Dijo…”
Thankfully, Penny stops studying earlier than ending Dijonay’s identify — and her pal is simply too blinded by love to appreciate the reality. We’re left with this fleeting picture of Sticky as his automobile speeds away as shortly as doable:
“We at all times needed to increase out the world,” co-creator Bruce W. Smith tells TVLine of his determination to ship Sticky packing. “In doing that, generally you must revisit the place characters are going and the way we are able to herald new characters. For us, increasing the world generally means you lose characters, however you additionally acquire extra characters that assist develop the present in a course we really feel is important for this new model. That’s the place numerous our choices lie.”
On this case, Sticky vacating his house leaves room for a brand new household to maneuver in — one with two dads (Zachary Quinto and Billy Porter), a daughter (Keke Palmer) and a son (“A Boogie”).
However worry not, Sticky Nation. It’s doable that we haven’t seen the final of Brown’s character simply but.
“We by no means say by no means on our present,” Smith says of a doable return down the road. “That’s our factor. This present is about bringing in new characters and increasing the world, but in addition giving surprises on the similar time.”
After all, Brown’s absence from the venture shouldn’t come as a shock to anybody who’s been following the actor as of late. His most up-to-date on-screen look was within the 2007 collection finale of That’s So Raven, and he has but to be invited again for the sequel collection Raven’s House, now getting into its fifth season. Although he seems to be specializing in his rap profession, Brown has made headlines lately for his outlandish habits, together with making daring statements about his well-known buddies and former co-workers.
